The Genting Dream, currently homeported in Singapore, has become the first cruise ship in Asia to offer halal certified cuisine options.
With the ship granted halal certification by the Department of Islamic Development Malaysia, The Lido restaurant now offers a dedicated halal buffet section for Muslim guests.
“As an Asian homegrown brand, it gives us great pleasure to launch Dream Cruises’ first halal-certified cuisine offerings on board Genting Dream to meet the growing demand… Our halal certification will also support our meetings and incentive business partners who have requested this important offering,” said Thatcher Brown, president of Dream Cruises.
MICE groups now also have halal cuisine available for catering at dedicated function rooms.
Genting Dream is on a year-round homeport deployment in Singapore, sailing two-, three- and five-night itineraries to Penang, Phuket, Langkawi, Kuala Lumpur (Port Klang), Surabaya, North Bali and Macleod Island.
